Not very engaging lots of audio and pictures but not very engaging lots of potential, but was worthy of seeing. Takes about 45-60mins and costs 7-9 Euros.

If you have any interest at all in psychoanalysis this museum is worth visiting. Rooms laid out the way they were in his life before he had to flee to London. Good audio descriptions of history and good book shop. Post cards and newspaper cuttings reveal more of the man. Fascinating!

This was the actual apartment were Dr.Freud had his famous clinic. The original floors and walls are kept and you get head phones and listen to explanation to every room and every piece of photo/newspapar magazine on the wall. This place is small and requires a lot of listening. It is NOT suitable for kids. They will get bored. The... More

I enjoyed this museum; however, it is about the life of Sigmund Freud (not about his theories). Although, you can purchase his works, essays, and other Freudian-inspired material in the gift shop. I'd recommend this museum to those interested in Sigmund Freud, and it is pretty family oriented. However, I would not recommend it to adolescents (under 14). I think... More

My guidebook depicts this museum as one of the "Top Sites" inside Vienna. Except some antique collection of Dr. Sigmund Freud, all items being displayed are old furnitures, photographs and papers. I know that Dr. Freud is a great psychologist but can't realize the value of this museum.

There's almost nothing here. there's the furniture from the waiting room, but nothig else, just photos. the rest is all in London where Freud fled to from the Nazis in Austria. You're better off visiting the freud museum in London.

Since I am interested in psychology it was a very interesting place to visit. Not very big, however by taking an audio guide and a leaflet with all the descriptions of the objects, you can spend some very great and informative hours there. I would not recommend it to those who simply like to "look" in the museums, since here... More

I have to admit, based on the reviews, and some conversations with locals, I had low expectations coming to the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised! Although the lay-out and the way you engage with the exhibits is dated, it is effective at getting it's message across. The museum itself is in the Freud's family apartment,... More

Highly recommended. It wasn't easy to find using the map we had, but well worth the effort it took to find it. It gives a good insight into the life of Freud - particularly interesting is learning of what happened to the entire family during WW2.
